The aim of the article is to present two most commonly given masculine and feminine names in two parishes of the northern Masovia at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century. Christian names prevailed in the material. Also, it can be assumed that the magical and protective functions were taken into consideration when choosing a name. The names were often given according to a calendar. Choosing personal names in the parishes was also influenced by family traditions – the children used to be named after their parents. The most popular masculine name was Jan and the most popular feminine name was Marianna.
